    Recently read mahsaito's post about Diigo being buggy and didn't realize the scope of bugginess Diigo has.

    I think it's because I've been too busy highlighting/adding stickies/bookmarking to realize.

    Is Diigo right now better used for the rare occasion only?

    I asked this because even though I can sync my bookmarks through other social bookmarking sites, Diigo doesn't sync with Clipmarks so I have no way to back up my highlights and sticky notes.

    The actual toolbar and service are quite stable.
    I don't know what version 3 looks like (sent a request to be part of beta team the other week but i guess they have enough players) nor what the new features will be but i'm sure we'll find many pleasant surprises.

    Hi! darorme,

    > Recently read mahsaito's post about Diigo being buggy and didn't realize the scope of bugginess Diigo has.
    Which my post do you talk about? I feel Diigo is stable enough(of course not perfect. :P).

    > I think it's because I've been too busy highlighting/adding stickies/bookmarking to realize.
    Yes, if you want to use all of the diigo service, you are so busy. But, you don't "need" to do it. Only you "can" do it.

    > Is Diigo right now better used for the rare occasion only?
    No, I don't think so. Diigo is useful enough in almost case.

    > I asked this because even though I can sync my bookmarks through other social bookmarking sites, Diigo doesn't sync with Clipmarks so I have no way to back up my highlights and sticky notes.
    I agree with you. I want to backup. Both Clipmarks and Diigo are nnovative service. So, I feel that is not so easy. But, next version of Diigo will be able to use API. So, someone will be able to make sync tool (But, I couldn't find out API of Clipmarks).

    Mah,

    The bookmark in one of this group's collection comparing diigo/furl/delicious.

    I apologize. I thought that was your blog. I misread shared by mahsaito. I think that just meant you highlighted a part of the blog.

    I've just been researching the group trying to find a way to backup annotations and ran across this post. Has there been any progress on this? I spend a lot of time annotating research and fear that I could lose it all if I don't have a way to back them up. I have used scrapbook for a long time and love it's ability to reside safely on my computer (whereupon I can backup and work offline if need be)

    but that doesn't backup all of my annotations does it?(annotating a page is very time consuming...
    that's the main thing I want to backup... my bookmarks are backed up already)

    Your bookmarks, comments sticky notes can be exported in RSS format. What kind of data do yo want to include in the export file?

    I would like the areas that I've highlighted along with the sticky notes that they belong to. (the notes alone don't do a lot of good without the highlight that they are referring to. While researching, many times I mark up a page similar to what a student does while highlighting and making notes in a text book.
    You may want to consider using XML with a technique like scrapBook uses in order to capture the page.
    Allow the users to optionally back up the annotated page they just marked up. This would also solve the cache problem since the captured page would reside on the user's computer. (As it is now where a link is broken yet the cached version has no annotations at all)
